LIPA has restored service to more than 700,000 customers who lost power due to Hurricane Sandy. This leaves approximately 270,000 customers without power, excluding customers in the most severely flooded areas.

Power outages are one of the most frequent and impactful business hazards. Recent natural disasters have shown that outages can and will disrupt businesses and create major economic losses. Unfortunately, many businesses including hospital have not taken appropriate measures to mitigate this risk. http://tainoconsultinggroup.com/whitepapers/

LIPA outage map now essentially useless. They have taken the 118 miles of Long Island (length) and put it on your monitorm and expect you to be able to determine that status in any given neighborhood.
